And so it begins

This is the start of our strength cycle. We’ll be hitting squats, presses, deadlifts, and bench almost every week. Three weeks will see AMRAPs at the end of each session, followed by a deload week where we back off a bit. Percentages will go up over the next few months, as will your reps (hopefully). At the end, we’ll re-test to see how much of beast you became.

    Going into this, I was worried I wouldn’t actually finish in the time cap. Wall balls have not been good on me in the past. But they felt surprisingly good. I broke them into 3 sets each time, 22/10/10, 15/8/7, and 10/4/4 with short breaks…and for once, my shoulders were holding me back more than my breath.

    45-55-65-70-75% (max reps)

    Broke reps down:
    – Round 1: 20-13-9 (ok)
    – Round 2: 15-9-6 (broke in the middle)
    – Round 3: 10-8 (broke on the 8)
    … good rep scheme though, need to stick to it

    I am not lightning fast on anything but especially not on any wod with wall balls. They own me. But I feel like I’m finally getting some traction on them.
    I was not fast but they did not own me today, and that’s a first. 🙂

    27 second PR from last year!

    WOD @ 30#

    Did it unbroken with 20# last year, so tried it with 30#. 42 and 18 we UB. 30 was 21+9. Would like to try again with a less bouncy ball.

  9. Back squats x5
    I gave myself permission to stop after 10 reps but I somehow kept lifting that bar to 15! I know the last set was not perfect and I have some technique to work on..

    I dont know why I am so worried to use that darn 12# wallball, sets were 20/22, 15/15, 18.. It took everything to keep going the last few of each set..
    Situps, I just kept going..
